General :: Increase Mouse Cursor Speed In Ubuntu?

Jun 29, 2010

How do I increase the mouse speed in Ubuntu Linux? Running Gnome 2.30.0. I've already maxed out Pointer Speed Sensitivity in the Mouse Preferences control panel. I am not interested in increasing the Acceleration. Is there a config file I can edit to boost it past what the control panel allows?

I know that this mouse can track faster because it does in Windows.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Triple Monitor Xinerama - Cursor Movement Limited

Jun 6, 2010

UPDATE: I can get the wrapping to stop, but it offsets the image between monitors. It's like the center monitor's image was stretched upward, distorting the alignment with the side monitors, rather than just providing additional space at the top. If I switch it so the two side monitors are 120px lower than the center, (as i had it in 9.04) then the wrapping issue occurs again. This is frustrating. I could use some help. (64-bit Ubuntu 10.04)

After lots, and lots, and lots of googling, configuring, experimentation, and even unplugging and replugging, I finally got all 3 monitors working like I had them in 9.04... Or almost. The center monitor is larger than the two side monitors, being 1920x1200 compared to 1920x1080. When I move the mouse pointer on the center monitor, it hits a ceiling and disappears right around that extra 120 pixel area on top, and can be seen at the bottom of the screen.

General :: Sounds Like Under 10% Of Speed Increase

May 16, 2011

I have an old AthlonXP-2600+ running at 2.078 Ghz which I was assured would do 2.6Ghz, but actually doesn't and 2.178 Ghz is what we settled on. I have 266mhz ram on a board with 333mhz FSB and we sorted that out also, and specified the ram speed. That sounds like under 10% of a speed increase, if any. But the previous kernel I built here took 55 minutes (time make -j4). The one I built after the mods (nearly same config) took 33 minutes. (make clean; time make -j4) 40%? I've clearly improved or fixed something.

bash-4.1$ sudo grep BogoMIPS /var/log/messages |tail May 15 14:37:32 genius kernel: Calibrating delay loop (skipped), value calculated using timer frequency.. 4193.78 BogoMIPS (lpj=2096890) & later.

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Increase Ping / Speed

Feb 25, 2010

Last week my ping was 45 this week its 80. I've checked it on three different computers, and reset my router. I called verizon (my subpar isp) they run a few test, say every things fine. I recheck my ping, its back to 45 but only last 5 mins after they check it, then it goes back to 80. I'm always having problems with them, but every time I call them the problems "just so happen" to go away while their helping me.

Anyway, my question is... Is there anyway for me to increase my ping/speed without upgrading my internet? I have 3.5 upload, .75 upload, and a Westell model 327w. I know this is a general question and not really linux related but I thought I would try this forum first since its always so helpful. I have googled this subject but I only find windows related stuff that pertains only to the programs running on the machine. They suggest things like "dont download when you want high ping" and "temporarily turn off seeding for your torrents" It is most important in windows for me though, I like to play games and a difference of 50 and 110 ping does make a difference. Of course, everything seems slower, like streaming movies and stuff.

Ubuntu :: Install On An Old PC To Increase Its Speed And Usability

Jan 5, 2011

I recently decided to install ubuntu on an old PC to increase its speed and usability. Prior to this I had windows XP running on it. I installed the newest version of ubuntu, which makes the whole thing running unbearable slow. Under windows xp it was running ok, my question therefore is: which version would you guys recommend that needs less ressources, but still has comparable functionality to the new version?

Ubuntu Installation :: Using Multiple HD's To Increase Server Speed?

Jan 21, 2010

I am curious if it is possible to use multiple hard drives to increase server speed. I know I could run stripped drives or RAID0, but was wondering if there is any other way to do it within Linux. My default 9.10 Server install has 3 partitions as a default. Would splitting these on three drives make it any faster?

Ubuntu :: Increase Unity Launcher Scroll Speed?

May 28, 2011

Is there anyway to increase the speed of scrolling within the unity launcher? Like when you have more icons than that fit inside of your screen. I know you can just go to the scrunched up icon and hover it and it will appear, but is there a way to increase the scrolling speed when using a mouse wheel? It seems a little slow for my taste.

I think I seen a "bug report", for this, which really isn't a bug, but more a desired option to customize the unity launcher. Just wondering if this has been figured out, or even possible.

Nothing big, but just trying to tweak ubuntu a little more LOVE IT!

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Speed Drops Periodically And Will Not Increase Without Reconnecting?

Jan 25, 2011

after maybe half an hour, the wireless download rate drops to about 110ks (and runs happily at up to 20x this until then). At that point, it will never pick back up above that rate unless i disconnect and reconnect. Once the problem occurs once, its like to reoccur about every 5 to 10 minutes until the machine has rebooted.

Ubuntu :: Modify Mouse To Not Use Acceleration / Adjust Speed Of Cursor?

Jun 21, 2011

I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 and I have a Logitech MX518 mouse. I see that the Logitech SetPoint software is only for Windows, but I am not able to get the exact mouse behavior that I want through the Mouse settings in Ubuntu.

I want acceleration disabled, so I put the slider all the way to the left for acceleration. I then move the slider for mouse sensitivity, but I didn't notice a change in cursor speed. How can I modify my mouse to not use acceleration but adjust the speed of the cursor? Is there a special app I can install for this?

Ubuntu / Apple :: 10.04 - Mouse Movement And Zigzagging?

Jun 21, 2010

Anyway, just installed 10.04 desktop on a 4,1 Macbook. I've pretty much got everything to where I like it. My only real problem is the track pad/mouse not working right. Unless I move the the mouse perfectly vertical/horizontal the mouse starts zigzagging like crazy. The slower I move the mouse the more prominent the problem seems to be. I've tried playing with the mouse settings under preferences but nothing got it working smoothly.

Ubuntu :: Choppy And Flickery Window Movement

Jul 12, 2010

I've been using Ubuntu off and on for about a year now, and my problem is that when ever I move a window on the desktop it gets all flickery and choppy. I have 4 gigs of ram, an AMD Athlon X2 processor @ 2.70 ghz, and an NVIDIA 9500 GT graphics card with 1 gig ram. I have the recommended NVIDIA driver installed. Anyway I really like Ubuntu but this issue is annoying and makes it look like crap. I don't have this problem with Windows or KDE distros so maybe it is something with GNOME.

Ubuntu :: Possible To Get Quality Mouse Movement Like In Win7?

Jan 19, 2011

I've been using Windows (7) a little, and I just noticed that the mouse movement is simply infinite times better than Ubuntu's. On Windows I was able to actually "draw" things using the mouse, and it's amazingly comfortable. You actually feel on control of it. On Ubuntu I've tried to reduce the mouse polling rate to 2ms, and a number of different speed and acceleration combinations, but It seems impossible to achieve the same quality (or at least something acceptable after trying Windows).

Now that I'm used to Windows' mouse movement, I feel extremely uncomfortable and have difficult even to target links on webpages. Is there a way to increase the movement quality? My mouse is a Microsoft Basic Mouse. I'm attaching a file of a circle drawn with mouse on Windows and an attempt to reproduce it on Ubuntu.

General :: Turn Turtle-speed Browsing Into Penguin-speed Browsing?

I've just installed Slackware 13.1 in two different laptops for first time. I have some strange internet browsing behaviour in one of the laptops.

I can browse some pages e.g. ..... with firefox very slowly but NEVER facebook. I can browse almost any page, even facebook, with OPERA but very very slowly. The same goes with konqueror... Wicd shows that i am always connected with my WPA wireless network

Ubuntu :: Cut Random Text And When The Cursor Focus Jumps Back To The Location Of The Cursor On The Screen

Jul 1, 2010

Im running netbook remix on a eeepc 1005ha. It is my only OS and Im loving it except for one obnoxious quirk. It randomly cuts text and randomly pastes it. If there is something in the clipboard, it will usually paste that, but just as often it will cut random text and paste that. The pastes occur when the cursor focus jumps back to the location of the cursor on the screen. I dont know a better way to phrase that, but thats what it is doing. Say... I put the cursor over the word "pastes" in the paragraph above... even though Im typing in this paragraph, the focus will "jump" to the cursors physical locale (the word "pastes") and then paste whatever is in the clipboard. If the cursor is outside of the textbox, the page will jump to the bottom.

This behavior occurs across programs and in any place text can be entered. I can find no rhyme or reason for it... it just... happens. Sometimes even when Im away from my computer, so its not like Im hitting some key on accident. I have loved everything about this ubuntu distro, but this issue is just toany obnoxious. Writing psych papers on this thing is going to be near impossible if I dont get this fixed before I go back to school.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Windows Movement And Starter Menu Sluggish / Choppy

Aug 18, 2011

I have an Intel Core i7 860, 8 GB RAM, with nVidia Quadro NVS 295 graphics card running openSUSE 11.4 with KDE 4.7. Moving, resizing, and minimizing windows, opening the starter menu is sluggish, choppy. It's not that I cannot live with it, but it should be smooth, and that's what bothering me. It seems like I have tried "everything" to fix the problem, disabling the blur effect, the pixmap trick, changing nVidia driver (both the latest beta 285.03, the latest stable 280.13, and the one from the repository, 275.21), and enabling and disabling the things on the "Advanced" tab for desktop effects.

Changing from the Oxygen theme to something else improved it a bit, but it is still very choppy. It seems related to the number of windows I have open. If I have one window open, everything flows nicely, but already with two windows it becomes slow. I have a dual screen (TwinView) setup, but removing the second screen did not improve anything. I'm not very good at the graphics part. I can't stand all the comments about "sluggish Linux graphics" I get from MS Windows users.

These are the top lines I get from glxinfo:
Code:
name of display: :0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
server glx version string: 1.4

Ubuntu Installation :: Cursor Is Always Busy Cursor After Upgrade To 10.04

May 1, 2010

Am running Ubuntu NBR as the sole OS on my Dell Mini 9. Switched over in March to 9.10 NBR. Everything worked fine.Upgraded to 10.04 when it was released. It's awesome EXCEPT for this busy cursor thing.As soon as I log in, all the time my cursor is the spinning wheel of busyness.... It works just as a normal cursor would - my computer also does not seem to be slower due to any operations.If I open an application, the cursor will behave as usual within the window but if I more my cursor to the title bar or switch out of the application, the "busy cursor" resumes.

Ubuntu :: Significance Of Swap Partition - Cpu Light Keeps Blinking Continuously And The Mouse Movement Is Very Slow

Aug 2, 2010

I need to know the necessity of swap partition in Ubuntu.. I have recently bought a new HD and installed Ubuntu(with NO swap,only Ubuntu on a single partition) on it and am facing frequent,random hanging issues with it.. Earlier,my old HD used an swap partition along with main partition and i never faced hanging issues at that time..

Actually, when in hanging mode,the cpu light keeps blinking continuously and the mouse movement is very slow,the screen also becomes dim.After sometime,it comes out of hanging mode and mouse movement becomes normal.Sometimes,even after waiting for 15-20 minutes,it does not come out of hanging mode and the system has to be restarted.(this is what forced me to look for a possible solution to this)

Ubuntu Installation :: Broken - After Failed Upgrade To 11.04 - Everything Just Hanged - No Mouse Movement - No Hard Disk Activities

May 9, 2011

I tried to upgrade my Ubuntu 10.10 to 11.04 on my netbook. I choose the option to upgrade on the Update Manager. All packages had been downloaded, and the installer was busy to replace all the old packages.

During the update I noticed that my internet stopped working, so I disabled my wifi, so it couldn't interupt the upgrade. After a half an hour, I found out my internet worked again, so I pressed the wifi-button again on my laptop, so the wifi would turn on, but after that move my screen hanged, and the upgrade wasn't done yet. I pressed the powerbutton for 5 seconds, because there was nothing else I could do.. Everything just hanged, no mouse movement, no hard disk activities, just a frozen screen.

After this problem I rebooted, and I already knew what I was going to see, Ubuntu couldn't be loaded anymore (and it still can't).

Is there anybody who can help me to restore my laptop? There are really important things for college on the harddisk in the /home/ folder, but I was too stupid to forget to make a backup.. I mostly make backups of everything you can think of, but I thought it won't be neccessary.. damn..

I know that you can restore files using a live-usb (no cd, because it's a netbook), but I choose during the installation the option to 'encrypt' my documents.. So is it still possible to restore my documents, photo's etc. from the home-folder? I really need to get those things back..

When I try to boot all I get on my screen is the text (in Dutch): 'Disk partition / is not ready or is not found - Keep waiting or press S to cancel mounting, or press M to recover manually' The manual recovery doesn't do anything at all, and by the way, booting in the 'recovery mode' won't work either.
